Singer-songwriter Crystal Monee Hall is perhaps the hardest working person in music. The Virginia-born native came to Oakland by way of New York, where she spent several years singing in the Broadway musical Rent. Her debut album River Train is a mix of folk, soul, gospel, and rock. We talk to Crystal about River Train, her love of church choir, work as a backup singer for stars like Elton John, and we get to hear her perform some of her songs in studio. You can catch Crystal live, and on tour with the Mickey Hart (Grateful Dead) band, the Jazz Mafia, and others.
